The Essential Cross Body
Ever since moving to Chicago, I’ve noticed that the only purses that get used on a regular basis are my cross body bags. I think it’s because we walk nearly everywhere and trying to keep a bag balanced on my shoulder gets annoying. Plus, when it gets really cold out, I need my hands to be in my pockets, not holding a bag!
This cross body bag with interchangeable insider from India Hicks is a new favorite of mine. It’s simple and classic and comes in several different colors — the wine-colored version is my second favorite. The leather is beautiful, soft and high-quality which means this piece will last a long time! I also love the special details on the Maddison May bag, like the little cut out part on the top! You can pick which color of insider you want or get a couple of different ones to switch them out for a totally new look each time.
While it goes with everything in my closet, I recently wore it with this striped shirt with suede shoulder patches and a faux leather pleated skirt for a casual-chic look that’s perfect from day to night!
